From my very first day working in a salon I knew this was my life’s ambition.  I enjoy working with each of my clients to help them achieve their perfect hairstyle while educating them on the use of proper products and tools to recreate the look at home.  It is an incredible thing to see a client look in the mirror and beam with pride at the end of their appointment.
